  1. Moscow Mitch should just drop dead.

    • @I.P. DAILY ffs, what type of people are you talking to that are going to buy into your idea that trump was somehow cooperative in investigations? trump did everything he could as often as he could to stop the investigation. Months and months of listening to him whine about a stupid investigation he should be welcoming. When did he ever show any outrage that russians tried to infiltrate his campaign? Never. He was too damned worried about how it made him look, what was being done to him….how do you all not see any of this? Your fight with the democrats has been almost hilarious, you both make caricatures of each other and attack relentlessly. It really does not feel like trump supporters and democrats belong in the same country, you seem to hate each other and each other’s ideas WAYYYYYY too much.

    • @d2r67421 Was it,then why didn’t the obama administration tell trump that russia was trying to infiltrate the trump campaign? How many people got locked up for that? That’s right,a russian company that is now fighting his bs in court.How come someone got locked up for taxes? How come muellur got the anthrax guy wrong and ruined his life just before he caused 10,000 people to lose their job at an oil company that the Supreme court shot down unanimously?Muellur is a crook and NEVER looked at fusion gps.He was working for hillary and Durham is going to lock up the crooked dems that sleazy muellur refused to.

    • @d2r67421 He brought in nancy and chuck and they walked out twice when they did not get their way.It’s all on video.

    • @I.P. DAILY You see? You don’t even understand what the Mueller investigation was about, you obviously never read the special order.

      @Wisconsin Farmer don’t forget the legalized bribery trump wants to implement for influencing foreign companies. not hyperbole either.

      @Paul Wannerer not…really….trail of tears, japanese internment camps, needing to fight a war to convince half the population that black people were actual people, then needing several more decades to try to give them civil rights (still kind of failing that one). slavery should have been abolished right at the start. slave states should have chosen morality over economic expedience. that compromise in our founding has poisoned our entire existence.

      @Paul Wannerer … and in the name of security !

    • @Michael Finnigan That’s all true, but mind I wrote ‘decent’, not good, and I meant it in relation to now, i.e. it deteriorated, it was more decent than it is now, if only for a short time in a row. Btw, as of now there has never been a really good democracy that included all and everyone. Democracy is an ideal and as a rule ideals won’t be reached on this our world, ever.

    • Silver Watkins … Troll…btw your not on a secure server stable genius…lol

  3. Blatant, flat out, unadulterated exercise in corruption.

    • And John Roberts is just sitting back and letting it happen without even voicing an opinion.

    • Sounds like something Schiff would do or cook somewhere in a baseman

    • golfo909 like Bolton the guy who got $100,000 from Ukraine or mitt Romney who’s kid didn’t want to do what Biden’s kid was doing ?

    • @somastic69, so what happened to “Don’t say lawless when he hasn’t broken any laws.”? As for the Russian collusion “witch hunt”, you obviously haven’t bothered to read the Mueller Report because if you had, you would know that the only reference to the word “collusion” is in the section that explains why the term is not used in the report. It also details ten instances of possible obstruction of justice. But anyways, why was there contact between the Trump campaign and the Russians at all and you don’t have a problem with the Dotard confiscating the American translator’s transcript of the conversation between the Dotard and Vladimir Putin and forbidding her from talking to anyone about it and his subsequent private meetings with Vladimir Putin with NO Ameticans in the room? What’s up with that?!?

    They are so corrupt it’s SHAMEFUL! I will work from now to November to win the Senate AWAY from the disgusting cowards that currently sit in those seats. I’ve never campaigned for anyone b4 but i will now. Trump and his dictatorship MUST BE DEFEATED IN NOVEMBER 2020!

  5. I’m glad this is happening. This sham acquittal means the defeat of the senators on the hot seat and Trump.

    • I think another blue Tsunami is on the horizon. Surf’s Up!

    • It is true that the sham acquittal makes the Republican senators complicit in Trump’s cover up. The circle of guilt widens. I hope they get what is coming to them at the ballot box. Still it doesn’t make me happy.

    • Never underestimate ignorance! These people have been voting for people like McConnell for years now.

  6. Are we watching our country die right before our eyes? Very well could be.

    I just its ok we get help when running a election. Putin wil get me elected.

  8. If this is true, Democrats need to start another Impeachment. And then another. This is not acceptable. People need to protest against this. This is NOT RIGHT. A lot of people need to be put in jail for this, almost all GOP senators. Worse than Watergate!

      @I.P. DAILY if I am not mistaken I see people. Commit murder and still get off. But he is still a murder. In my book and. Most intelligent. People would agree He is still a murder ok

      @Remco V well if you call 40 % out of a 100% majority. Well. We all see why your a. Maga. Supporter who do not have a brain of there. Own

    • @Maurice Willims The same people that wear vagina hats and are gender confused?

    • @Maurice Willims Your book is fiction !!

  9. We are all witnesses to the Great Republican Cover-up of 2020.

  10. And thus Moscov Mitch Mc-Con-nell once again tries to murder democracy like the russian Puppet he is.

  11. Jail time 2020.

    Moscow McConnell supports this and there is no rule of law. By definition, the fair trial is destroyed. There is no U.S.A. Although, give the Bernie people one last chance to save America with your help.

    • Wisconsin Farmer | January 30, 2020 at 2:01 PM | Reply

      It isn’t red vs blue

      It’s the 1% vs you.

    • Coldwynn Frost | January 30, 2020 at 7:16 PM | Reply

      @Wisconsin Farmer It’s actually the ruled vs. the rulers. That’s the first division in any society. The rest is made up to maintain that division by people who find it comfy. For example, there is no scientific basis for racism.
      *edit* I just gave an example. I’m not saying anything about you.

    • Coldwynn Frost | January 30, 2020 at 10:08 PM | Reply

      @bones007able I definitely feel your hopelessness and I absolutely will not tell you things will get better if we just stay the course. The course is actually why things are crap.
      Which is why Bernie is building a movement. Even Obama, before he sold out to Wall Street, said that change happens from the bottom up. Well we’re the bottom … insert jokes. I am not a farmer. I’ve read about farmers committing suicide for a variety of reasons. I, a Lefty but not corporatist, am so sorry this has happened. It’s horrible. It has to stop. This is why I support Bernie. There are so many instances on video where Bernie spontaneously cares about people. There is no doubt.
      Bernie is asking us to step up. To expand our awareness and shed the propaganda we are constantly bombarded with. You are my brothers/sisters because we share the same journey.

  13. I have a question to all the Republican Senators:
    Any common sense left?

  14. GOP blocking witnesses…..let that sink in for a minute then remember that fact when you vote. Straight Blue down the ballot, the Republicans are completely corrupt!

  15. The fix is in!
    Cover up! Well people you know what that means, it means that it’s up to us the American people. We got to vote. Vote that criminal out of the white house…November!

    We need a revolution and a new form of government.
    This dystopic farce of a government, endless wars, Military crazed, bought and sold by the highest bidder.

      @guitarsurfer2010 there has been some definite indication that Tulsi backs Bernie.. or approves of him, if you will. She recently stopped by a campaign office to visit. Also, Yang just said most of his support will likely go to Bernie. Bernie and Biden are neck and neck in the polls in Iowa and New Hampshire. The addition of support from Tulsi and Yang enthusiasts would put Bernie at a comfortable lead. Of course, then you would have the corrupt DNC to deal with. However, their hands are tied if a candidate can get 1,990 delegates nationwide. He seems to have weathered the heart attack pretty well. I’m wondering who he would pick as a VP running mate… That could also make a difference. Also, I think he’s just one year older than Biden.

      The DNC’s dilemma is that they DON’T want to run a Democratic socialist, but they may have to, to regain The White House.

      @Jeffrey Hittepole Jeffrey, 
      who would you like elected in 2020 ?

    • Jeffrey Hittepole | January 30, 2020 at 6:47 PM | Reply

      @guitarsurfer2010 I’m thinking Bernie Sanders, if he can get the nomination. If Biden gets it, I’ll sort of feel like not even going to the polls.

  17. If we dont get witnesses everything we’ve ever known about America is done.

  18. Never let anyone forget that the GOP has become the party of corruption.

    • GOP now stands for ‘Government of Putin’. They no longer stand with or represent America.

    • The GIP Died with McCain the corrupt party of Trump is the new Republican Fascist Party. And that’s how they should register it.

    We know what it is. It’s BS.😩 Mr.Turtle has the power. Absolute power corrupts, absolutely. Kentucky come get your man!! Send him home.

  20. At this point there’s only one thing left to do: vote out every GOP politician.
